Ben “jenbizzle” Jones enjoyed a massive $64,110 score on Apr. 14 when he triumphed over a star-studded field in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller.

Jones topped a field of 159 in the $2,100 buy-in event and had to contend with a ridiculously tough final table that saw him lock horns three-handed with fellow Brit Patrick “pads1161” Leonard and Steve “Mr. Tim Caum” O’Dwyer.

Leonard fell in third-place for $38,004 and Jones then dispatched O’Dwyer in second-place leaving him with $49,360 to console himself with. The $64,110 Jones banked is the fourth-largest cash of his career. His largest weighs in at $162,039, Jones’ reward for winning a $215 SCOOP High Roller in Sep. 2018.

Damian “DamoWain” Wain also found himself in the winner’s circle after triumphing over a field of 396-players in the $530 buy-in Sunday 500. Wain got his hands on $36,069, the third-largest cash of his career so far. Ireland’s Dan “NukeTheFish!” Wilson was also at the final table, although his tournament ended in a ninth-place finish worth $3,279.
